How To Sign Up
You may pay your entry fee’s the morning of the tournament at the ramp. However, you may pay online now. By paying online now, you can generally skip the lines at the boat ramp and secure an earlier starting position. Additionally, you may use a credit card online to pay for your fee’s. Only cash and checks are accepted at the ramp the morning of each tournament.
Weigh-in will begin at 2:00 pm. You are eligible to weigh-in early if you desire. Weigh-in will last until 4:00 pm. If you need additional time to weigh-in your fish you are required to notify the tournament director before this time elapses. Fair warning will be given before the scales are closed.
It is the competing teams responsibility to ask for courtesy measurements on potential short fish and to request a big fish weight.

Parking and Launching Information
The town of Plymouth offers 2 boat ramps for anglers on Water Street. You may use either ramp to put your boat in the water. However, you will need to check in with the Tournament Director before blast off.
If you’re using the ramp farthest from the blast off area, you will be required to idle back down towards the light house ramp, which is where registration and weigh-in will occur. There is plenty of parking by each ramp and parking is NOT expected to be an issue.
